Standard disclaimer: All prices are taken from the websites of each chain, or from their printed Sunday advertisements. All prices are subject to change by each chain. Prices and inventory in-store may or may not match the website price.

I, obviously, cannot include EVERY title released in a given week in the RoundUp. The titles included are those that I am interested in…as well as those which I consider will be of interest to a majority of consumers (and sometimes I’ll miss one!). I don’t get paid for this, and I don’t have the time to list every DVD. So, please don’t complain! If there is a title not included in the RoundUp that you want to see, PLEASE just look it up yourself, and be nice enough to post and share the results with everyone!

  1. Hey RoundUppers!

    Lots of interesting titles being released this week.  But not much for me, personally.  Probably Cat on a Hot Tin Roof at some point. 

    Thanks in advance for any "likes" on this week's RoundUp!  Enjoy the weekend!

  2. Thanks for your work, Mike.  I imagine I'll end up with Cat on a Hot Tin Roof eventually too, and I would like to see 11-22-63 at some point.  A Hologram for the King was really good and I would enthusiastically recommend a rental for those who think they might be interested, but I don't know that I need to own it necessarily, so it would probably be a post-price drop purchase if anything.  So, nothing for me this week (which is fine, since last week was expensive.)

  3. A second Kino week in a row for me, with the two Randolph Scott films (in CINECOLOR!).

    Oh, and I just found a cheaper price for the Perry Mason: The Complete Movie Collection from Deep Discount ($28.99), so I'm pulling the trigger on that too.

  4. Thanks as always, Mike!

    "Supergirl: The Complete First Season" is the only day one purchase for me. I adored watching it as it aired on CBS; it captured the spirit of the Superman mythos better than than any live action production since the Christopher Reeve movies. I'll have to wait and see what Target's "collectible packaging" entails before I decide whether it's worth $2 more than Best Buy's price. The photo on the Target website looks exactly the same as the Best Buy cover art.

    I'll probably pick up "11.22.63" on Black Friday a few years from now.

  5. Thanks for your efforts to get the RoundUp written and posted, Mike!

    I have requested a review copy for NCIS: New Orleans, but it hasn't arrived. I have already reviewed all of the Perry Mason made-for-TV movies as the original releases streeted, so those interested in might do a search in the TV-on DVD forum if you need to get some information on contents and impressions.

    I'll definitely be getting Cat on a Hot Tin Roof.

  6. Thanks for the RoundUp!I've had Supergirl preordered for quite some time.  I thought the bulk of the first season was a blast with perhaps just a few small stumbles in the season finale.The Flash crossover and the Black Mercy ep are worth the price of admission!

  7. Nothing this week, thankfully. In fact, I think the next movie is going to be Jungle Book at the end of the month. Right now, funds are being diverted to pay for a quickie Disneyland trip and two trips to Costa Rica in January.

    Thanks, as always, Mike!

  8. Apparently the Target exclusive version of "Supergirl: The Complete First Season" is just a lenticular version of the regular slipcover, so I saved two bucks and got the regular version at Best Buy instead. A bit surprised that they crammed 20 40+-minute episodes onto three discs (seven episodes each on the first two discs, six episodes plus special features on the third disc); "Arrow" and "The Flash" only have three more episodes a season, and they get four-disc releases. Still, much higher bitrate 1080p than broadcast or streaming. I'm grateful that Warner Bros. continues to stand by TV on Blu-Ray when the other studios are so much more reticent.

    Walmart's price for Midnight Special also dropped below $13.00, so I pulled the trigger on a site-to-store for that.

  9. Target and the Bros Warner have cooked up another gimmick to squeeze some more galleons out of the old Harry Potter series: "Two-Disc Target Exclusive"  editions. The First disc contains the movie … The second disc is Part X of the making of …To get the entire making of you have to buy all the movies again!!!

    $10.00 $15.00

    Look for the display in the front of the store by the checkout lanes !

    Don't wait for the book … buy the movie … !

  10. As far as my reading goes the 8 individual releases are the movie disc and the extra disc from the Ultimate/Hogwarts/Wizards set (16 of 19 Bluray discs from the Hogwart/Wizards without the  3D discs and the ExtraBonus Disc 31 only with the 2 big sets).    HP 1 and 2 contain the Theatrical and Extended editions.

    Target exclusive were released 7/31 for 2 weeks.   I'm still unclear whether this gets a full release on 8/11 or if it goes away entirely, but I'm thinking  it becomes a wide release then

    The Hogwarts set has been sub $100 several times and as low as $70 for the 31 disc boxset so $15 each  seems to be an expensive way to get 8 new slipcovers and 2 disc BD cases,  lose the 12 DVDs along with the 3 extra BDs.
